Top 7 Fatal Mistakes Men Make When Buying Lingerie

 

7. Being the Shy Boy

“How am I ever going do this?!” sounds familiar? Have you ever wanted to get your girlfriend a piece of lingerie but you never had the guts to shop for it? If you want to surprise her, you bet it’s worth walking into that lingerie store and get her something nice. Don’t be shy, you are not the only guy who walks through that door to do some female underwear shopping. After all, you get to see her wearing it, right?

 

6. Shopping without Shopping

So you muster your courage, you walk through that door feeling a little bashful. Shopping is called shopping for a reason. Since you have made up your mind, it doesn’t hurt to look around at the different types of lingerie in the store. Choosing one that’s expensive doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. Remember, it’s the results that matter, not the process!

 

5. Playing the Guessing Game

A for Lemon, B for Orange… No, B for Bra Sizes! Yes, that’s right and that’s exactly what I am saying. There is no way you can guess her bra size or equate it to some fruits (I’m not saying it’s wrong but it’s just very vague) when shopping for her. Don’t guess her size, ask her! You can check her closet and if it doesn’t work, you can bring her lingerie to the store and let them help you out with the size.

 

4. Unflattering sizes

Getting her the wrong size for Valentine’s is as good as buying her nothing. Wearing a poor fitting bra not only has concerns over health issues but it makes the wearer uncomfortable and unflattering. It could also create unnecessary visible bra cups and straps over her blouse.

 

3. Making her a Porn Star

Here’s a pointer; the lingerie is for HER, not for YOU! When deciding on what to buy, never ever get your inspiration from your favorite adult film stars. Your girlfriend isn’t one of them. Also, less fabric doesn’t mean it’s cheaper, I know what you are thinking of *grin* She wouldn’t be too flattered to know that you want her to dress like a porn star. Instead, get her something comfortable and nice.

 

2. Undesirable styles

A piece of lingerie is not just for support. There are many different styles other than just the Push Up. If you have no idea, read the rest of the blog. Take your time and do your research, buy something which suits her personality. You’ll know it’s worth it when you see that smile on her face.

 

1. Mismatching Fashion

There’s the bra and the panty and there is certainly no reason to mismatch them. Buy a complete set instead. Well, after all I am pretty sure you wouldn’t want her to think you got them from a cheap sale do you?

Top 7 Awful Misconceptions on Wearing Lingerie

 

7. I Actually Need a Measurement?!

No, you don’t need a measurement, you need MEASUREMENTS! I can’t stress enough that despite your age and your “what-you-think-your-size-is size”, you still need to measure yourself. A woman’s breasts change in size due to various different factors like menstruation and pregnancy. It is important to have yourself measured to get the perfect fit. Ill fitted bras have negative effects on your health, but if you are not concerned over health I’m pretty sure you want to look beautiful, right?

 

6. Comfortable Bras are Perfect Fits

It’s not surprising anymore to hear women say their bras are the perfect fit just because they are comfortable in them. Reminder; 80% of women wear the wrong bra size! What you think is comfortable could most likely be the wrong fit. You may want to check out for some signs that you are wearing the wrong size.

 

5. One Perfect Fit is ALL I Need

Because a woman’s body changes due to factors like weight loss and weight gain, pregnancy etc. you will need an average of 5 different sizes in your closet. Have yourself measured from time to time. Your self esteem will skyrocket if you look pretty; you bet it’s worth the effort!

 

4. Lingerie is Only for Support

Perhaps you grew up having told that you need bras to support your ladies. Well, that is probably because lingerie back during your mother’s youthful days had yet to recognize fashion. But today, in the 21st century, lingerie is no longer about giving you support but the perfect fit is able to enhance your body figure and it is a fashion piece you can be proud of!

 

3. So I have the Push Up Bra and the Sports Bra and…. What else do I need?

This is actually very common misconception among women that there are only limited styles of bra to choose from. In fact, there are more than just the Push Up and Sports Bra. If you need to enhance your cleavage, why not try out a Plunge Bra instead? And if you want to accentuate your busts, there is the Balconette Bra. Don’t limit yourself, confidence knows no limits!

 

2. Discounts, Discounts and More Discounts! I Love Discounts!

There is absolute nothing wrong being price conscious but being too conscious can be a bad thing. Good bras do not necessarily have to be expensive but good bras certainly come with a price. After all, there is a lot of work involved in making a good one. Don’t be like everyone else – if you find one that fits you well, you know it’s worth the price!

 

1. Boutique Shopping Vs Mall Shopping

If you have ever wondered why shop in standalone boutiques when you can have a plethora of selections in just one place, the supermarket! Supermarkets and departmental stores usually offer mass produced lingerie for the masses. Hence, finding one which fits you perfectly would be a tough job. Specialty stores selling ONLY lingerie are very much specialized and professional. Visit one and you are sure to find the right one.
